As specialists in replacement double glazing, Mr Misty offers high quality safety and security glass because it is hugely important to our homes and businesses.
Feature windows, sliding or patio doors, glazed panels – these days glass is so much more than something which delivers light; it can both bring a real wow factor in your property - and be one in its own right.
But accidents and break-ins do happen. And when standard annealed glass breaks, it forms potentially lethal shards or glass splinters.
Fortunately, there are now high-performing ranges of safety glass on the market which deliver unprecedented glass strength, integrity and ultimately, real peace of mind. Watch our video here →
In the family home, keeping little ones safe is a high priority. Hazards are everywhere from people slipping and falling, to stone chips being thrown up by the lawn mower outside.
And then there is the question of security – where’s the point in having locks on windows or doors if smashing the glass is an easier way to break and enter?
The Mr Misty team often get asked for toughened glass to replace standard glass. In reality though, innovations in glass technologies have moved on rapidly over recent years and there are much safer and highly cost-effective glazing options on the market.
Laminated glass by far out performs other safety glass options on safety and security, so what’s the difference?
All ‘safety’ glass must have passed an impact test and either must not break or must break safely.
There are three levels of impact: C, B and A, ‘A’ being the highest.
Each involves the glass being impacted by a leather bag containing 45kg of lead shot, roughly simulating the impact of a child weighing 100lbs [45kg] hitting the glass with varying degrees of force.
Three generic glass types meet this British Standard requirement – laminated, toughened and wired safety glass.
In addition, all security glasses automatically qualify as Class A safety glasses.
